HelPPPP messed up surface

hey everyone, just got a quick question. How do I export a nurbs object out as dxf format and reimport back into a scene say to fix UV number of spans problems for a nurbs surface? say for example I had 3 and 4 spans for UV direction on a surface and I need my my parametization to be 0 to num of spans ( for U it would be 0 to 3 and for V it would be 0 to 4). Say of course the numbers are messed up and I needed to export and import that same object back in to fix that problem...I have tried to load the dxf plug-in in maya 5.0 and reimported the object only to find that it became a polygonal object, when instead i need a nurbs surface that is correctly parametized in U and V. I hope someone out there understands what I trying to say. For anyone who has done patch modelling, you will know that this is kinda crucial to be able to do. Thanks everyone.

They totally screwed this up in Maya 5 by no longer providing and supporting the aliastomaya conversion

If you have Maya 4.5 or earlier you could use the aliastomaya.exe and a MEL script.
